Hello! I am Mrs. Dean and am thrilled to be a part of the Hayden Peak community. I previously taught 5th grade for 2 years at Redwood Elementary in Granite School District. I have worked with children in a number of different capacities for the past 6 years and feel passionately about helping them learn, grow, and live up to their full potential. I graduated from the University of Utah in 2019 with my Bachelors degree. I was born and raised in Salt Lake City and feel very fortunate to be able to raise my own family here. I am a mom to two super awesome boys. They both play baseball which means we spend A LOT of time at the baseball fields! Watching them play and cheering them on is my absolute favorite thing to do!
Hello! I’m Mrs. Goodwin and I want to make this year fun and successful for everyone. I’m looking forward to getting to know you and your child. After fifteen years of teaching preschool I moved to 5th grade, where I hope to stay for a very long time. My job is also a hobby, I really do like it that much. Teaching and children are my jam. It is important to me that every student feels valued in my classroom. Outside of that I love decorating, boating with my family, and reading, especially the classics. My favorite superheroes are Rocket & Star Lord (Guardians) and I think Diet Mt Dew is a food group.
I am so excited to teach 5th grade again this year. I love teaching! I wanted to be a teacher from a very young age. I grew up here in West Jordan until I was 12 years old. My family then moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico. I learned a lot in my experiences down there and I’m grateful for the different perspectives I gained, especially culturally. I moved back to Utah to go to college on a music scholarship. I met my husband during this time and we have 3 children. We raised our children for the most part in West Jordan. My own kids went to Hayden Peak for almost all of their schooling. I love this area and the people in the community. I love music! ( I love to sing and play the piano or the oboe. I also love to listen to all types of music, but especially 80’s “New Wave” music and 90’s alternative. Haha!) I love to travel, refurbish old furniture, and eat good food! Dark chocolate and Coke Zero can solve all problems. 😉
Hello, I’m Mrs. Sutton! I can’t wait for another year teaching the awesome 5th grade students at Hayden Peak! Before finding my passion for teaching, I was a social worker. I have always loved being in the capacity of helping people, and can’t wait to help my students grow. Building a relationship with each student is my priority. It is important to me that every student feels valued in my classroom. Outside of teaching, I love baking, learning new things, being outdoors and spending time with my family.
